Wear it Wednesday - Mustard & Green Beans

Conversation I had with the Hubs on Saturday on our way to a birthday party:

Me: Do you like my outfit?
Him: Ha, well, I don't know. See, I was always taught to match.
Me: Oh, you mean like green and yellow don't match?
Him: No, like your tights and your shirt are two different shades of yellow.

Umm... ok.

 Khaki Jacket: Thrifted ($6)
Shirt: Gap (Borrowed from Sis)
Skirt: Ann Taylor Loft, Thrifted ($3.50)
Tights: Target ($5, or $15, since this is my 3rd pair)
Boots: Shoedazzle (Gift)
Ring: Glow Salon ($5)
Other Jewelry: Borrowed from Sis

Later that day:
Me: Can you believe that the first time I wore my mustard tights, I snagged a hole in them?? So, I bought another pair and would you believe I snagged them again??
Him: Maybe it's a sign...
Me: That the universe is working against my coolness?
Him: No, that mustard should be used for your hotdogs and not your legs.

Umm... ok.

And if you're wondering, yes, this is my third pair of mustard tights from Target. And yes, they did snag again today! I guess it's time for me to try a different brand!

 My sister's cool accessories =)

What do you think?  Does mustard work on legs with a skirt the color of green beans and a shirt the color of sunshine? =)

Your conversation with your husband sounds like one hubby and I would have. I found I need to stop asking him if he likes my outfits because he doesn't understand the whole inspiration from blogs thing...

Wow they snagged 3 times..I'd be super annoyed! This is an adorable color combo! My husband and I have very similar conversations :)

Lena @ Mom2MemphisAndRuby said...

Haha! Love it!
The outfit is cool... I'm still on the hunt for mustard yellow tights!

The other day, after looking in the mirror and thinking "I kinda look very 70's office-ish", the hubs looks at me and says "you kinda look like a freak."

I wore the outfit, got compliments from the other ladies in the office... and the hubs still loves me.

What do men know anyway! ;)

I think the mustard tights are awesome and that your hubby is just jealous.
Also are these the $5 kind from Target? I had snagging trouble with those too. I think it might be time for me to upgrade to some 'We Love Color'

Sarah Frills4Thrills said...

can't believe they snagged with those boots! you'd think they'd be covered up for the most part! guys are funny. the mustard tights look really good against the brown of those boots.

What's the next line? Help write the story!

Looool, I love your husband´s humour, it made me laugh out loud :) There must be some sign in your snagged tights :)

Happy Thursday sweetie!

hehe...your hubs has very cute comments. Mustard is meant for hotdogs are hilarious! No dearie, not to worry, I think you look fine, I would love to try mustard tights if I'm as young as you! The colors look cute together, very cheery and playful! I snag my tights all the time.

That conversation was so cute! Most men don't know much about fashion, my hubby tells me to ask the girls for fashion advice :) The mustard tights are adorable, but what a bummer that this is your third pair.

This conversation was HILARIOUS! So funny. I don't know if I could pull off mustard tights, but I really like them on you.

rlutz said...

men just don't get it. I love the combo of the mustard, green bean and sunshine! I also find that my target colored tights sang really easily.

silvergirl said...

don't listen to husband, mustard is not only for hotdogs, it is for legs too
the target tights do not hold up
i love tights from HUE, the last until the elastic wears out!
great color combo, totally works

Andie said...

if you want better tights that will not snag, get HUE tights. Those rarely ever snag and they come in all sorts of crazy colors!

Meagan said...

That green skirt is adorable! Thanks for linking up!

marissa said...

oh boys haha. I love mustard for clothing (and only clothing ugg the stuff makes me gag) anyways I'd love it if you would add this to my blog party at

Claire said...

love the yellow and green together and those boots are fab!

Tara said...

Personally, I love the this might be one of those moments where you just nod your head at your husband, but tune him out, just the same :)

At least where fun fashion is concerned, anyway...
